[SCG54-16] Advanced Well Logging across Crust-Mantle Transition in Oman
Keywords:Oman Drilling Project, Crust-Mantle Boundary, Well Logging, ICDP
Under the International Continental Drilling Program (ICDP) support and guidelines, core samples from the crust-mantle (CM) boundary were taken in the Phase II (Nov., 2017-Jan., 2018). In addition, drilling parameters were monitored and recorded from two CM sites with cooperation from the drilling companies, and most advanced well logging was carried out to the depths where logging tools could reach.
Schlumberger’s wireline logging acquired high-resolution and continuous density-porosity, natural and spectral gamma, resistivity and its images, sonic velosity (P & S waves), and geochemical logs (elements and minerals). Preliminary results of acquired and processed well logging data across crust-mantle transition will be presented and plan for the data integration studies will be discussed. As first ever geophysical site survey taken from one of three offshore Mohole targets recently, potential application of Oman study results in the planning offshore Mohole to Mantle drilling (M2M) will also be introduced.
